Heritage Foundation salutes Chuck Colson

Civil Disobedience and Christians

Uploaded by on Jul 20, 2010

Chuck Colson talks about civil disobedience and cases where Christians may need to practice it. Drawing on the Manhattan Declaration, which refers to civil disobedience as a possibility (if government encroaches too much on religious freedom), Colson also brings in Dr. Timothy George, a co-drafter of that document. Mr. Colson also highly recommends you read T.M. Moore’s,

We at Heritage were saddened to learn of the death of Christian leader, cultural commentator and former White House counselor Charles W. “Chuck” Colson.

America is the land of second chances — and few men have made more of theirs than Chuck Colson did. For in addition to loving and serving his country, the former Marine captain and “President’s hatchetman” came to love and serve a God of second chances.

As an author, speaker and laborer in the vineyard, Chuck spent the past four decades encouraging others to escape poverty, addiction, hopelessness and dependence on government — and to embrace life and liberty. Through his Prison Fellowship Ministries, at the Colson Center for Christian Worldview and in partnership with countless allies — including Heritage on our “Seek Social Justice” project — it truly can be said that Chuck did the Lord’s work.

His was an unlikely, amazing journey of redemption. We, like so many others, will miss his cheerful, winsome presence on the battlefields and the mission fields.

Well done, Chuck. We’re lifting you, Patty and the entire Colson family in our prayers.
